PŸUR launches Marketing Offensive

- New 20Mbps internet tariff for EUR 20 per month

- All-net flat rates for carefree national and international phone calls

- Three months free advanceTV experience

Berlin, October 10, 2018. Pure Surf 20, an entry-level internet tariff with 20Mbps for just EUR 20 per month, is available from now on, along with new attractive telephony tariffs. Customers moving from DSL to PΫUR's network will receive 23 commercial HD channels, further pay-TV channels in HD and advanceTV with maxdome free of charge for three months.


Pure Surf 20 and new all-net flat rates

Among the popular internet stand-alone products, Pure Surf 20 is now available, an inexpensive entry-level tariff with a bandwidth of 20Mbps for downloads, sufficient for many popular web applications. Like all other stand-alone tariffs from PΫUR, Pure Surf 20 can be terminated within one month following the initial contract period of just three months.

Additionally, PΫUR will shortly complement its telephony offer with attractive all-net flat rate products. They will enable calls to all German fixed-line and mobile networks for EUR 10 per month or, additionally, to mobile and fixed-line networks of selected European countries as well as the US and Canada[1] for the price of EUR 25 per month.

"With our new entry-level tariff Pure 20, we specifically target price-conscious customers previously tied to a DSL tariff with 16Mbps. For performance-oriented customers, we offer 10 times the speed with Pure Speed 200 for a surcharge of only EUR 10 per month stressed Stefan Riedel, Chief Consumer Officer at PΫUR. "Former DSL customers also benefit from a large variety of HD channels as well as the opportunity to experience our improved advanceTV platform with attractive film and series content in a risk-free starter package."


Changeover offer up to 12 months free of charge

Customers wanting to move from another provider to the fast fibre-optic based internet access from PΫUR and opting for a Surf & Phone + TV package will be exempted from the monthly cost of the PΫUR contract until the expiration of their contract for up to 12 months. Customers interested in a PΫUR Speed stand-alone tariff will be exempt from the monthly cost for up to three months when changing from their previous provider.

Attractive entertainment packages for unlimited movie fun

Customers coming from a DSL provider can opt for pureTV HD plus PremiumTV or for the combination of advanceTV HD with PremiumTV and the maxdome flat rate: pureTV HD contains 23 additional commercial TV channels in HD while PremiumTV provides further 12 commercial-free channels, eight of them in HD quality.

advanceTV - new features and now even more intuitive

Far more than a sophisticated set-top-box: On an intuitive user interface, advanceTV combines linear television, a maxdome flat rate and Hollywood blockbusters on-demand with further smart TV apps on a unique platform. A large part of the content is also accessible through the innovative advanceTV app on a tablet or smartphone anywhere in the home. The new advanceTV version features improved navigation across the broad maxdome line-up. Content can now be stored in a watch list and detailed actor information is now available for maxdome content. The advance TV box has also increased its speed during channel switching even further, providing an outstanding user experience for all channel hoppers and channel explorers.

Pure Surf 20 as well as all offers of the current PΫUR campaigns can be signed up for at the local shops, by telephone through the freephone number 0800 / 5858 110 36 and from October 23, 2018 also through the website There are no delivery costs or activation fees when signing up through the internet.
